Depends where you are in China. You are in Tianjin. Despite the heavy pollution, Tianjin is a decent, first-tier city. I'm in Shenzhen and some of the teachers here are making 150 to 250 rmb/hr. One teacher I know was recently offered 8000 rmb/month to give private lessons to a wealthy businessman. That is not the norm but those opportunities do exist.
Shoot for 250 rmb/hr but expect about 150 - 200 rmb/hr.
Hi Jere Sorry I did not reply right away, my sister passed away Friday and I have been at her bedside all week. Thank you for the information. Any ideas as what I will need to bring that I may not find in Tianjin? Also I have a new LG android tablet, I am told I can get it unlocked here in Calgary, do you know if I can get a sims card for it in China. I hope to be there in 2-3 weeks. Thanks Mardy
Hi Mardy Sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. I'm sure that was not an easy thing to go through. Send me an email and I can tell you what to bring (and the things I wish I brought with me before I left the USA). Here's my email : firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if you have any other questions as well. Dale
